KU Students Apologize for “Hooliganism”, Appeal VC to Consider Apology



Students of Kashmir University (KU) who were earlier expelled by the University authorities on Wednesday made a ardent appeal to the varsity authorities to consider their apology.

This time authorities are not to be blamed as the students are at fault, officials in the varsity told Kashmir Life.

Today early in the morning, a group of students assembled outside Vice Chancellor’s (VC) secretariat seeking apology for their act.

The VC, according to officials, had sought a representation from students and asked them to disperse the crowd.

The officials said few days ago an ‘unknown’ person was spotted driving rough inside the varsity near Budshah Gate and according to students, had hit a student there as well.

“But the students couldn’t take hold of the person as the driver fled from there,” officials said.

Later, the students barged into the residence of Prof. Nisar of Mathematics department and resorted to ‘hooliganism’.

“The students had to cut a sorry figure because it was proven that he was offering prayers at the time of the incident,” officials said.

Following the ‘act of hooliganism’, varsity authorities constituted a five-member committee to probe the incident.

“We have recommended their expulsion from their hostels and suspension from their classes,” Dean Academic Affairs, Prof M Ashraf Wani said.

He said the students, without ascertaining the facts, attacked a senior faculty member of the university which was uncalled for.

“This is unprecedented as such hooliganism was not in practice here before. The students crossed every limit of mischief,” Wani said, adding that he was always favorably disposed towards the students but the current episode has proven that the students are “spreading terror inside the varsity”.

“It is a unique case of indiscipline here,” he said. “We have served a notice to them to vacate from hostels up to 4pm today.”

Meanwhile, the students said they have appealed to the varsity authorities to consider their apology and allow them to put up in the hostels and continue the classes.

“We were misinformed by some people in varsity. We have tendered our apology and have been called by VC for a meeting,” students said.
